Around the :32sec mark, if you look closely, you can see crap fumes emit from Debbie’s noggin. There is nothing and I mean nothing, inside or out, that is remotely appealing about DWS. Lord, have mercy…
FoxNews-On Fox News Sunday, interviewed by guest host John Roberts, the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee somehow managed to keep a straight face as she brazenly claimed: “I have no idea of the political affiliation of folks who are associated” with Priorities USA, the Super PAC that ran the ad essentially blaming Mitt Romney for a woman’s cancer death. But as is undoubtedly well known to Wasserman-Schultz, Priorities USA is run by Bill Burton—Obama’s former Deputy Press Secretary. View the video after the jump.
What words would you use to describe Wasserman-Schultz’s assertion?
JOHN ROBERTS: You probably saw we were talking with John McCain a couple of minutes ago. We aired a little bit of that Priorities USA ad. Should the Democrats be releasing an ad that accuses a presidential candidate of being responsible–through inference–of being responsible for a woman’s death?
DEBBIE WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: Well, first of all, that’s a Priorities USA, it’s not a Democratic ad —
ROBERTS: I understand–
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: –a Priorities USA Super PAC ad, which we had nothing to do with it.
ROBERTS: Do you deny that they’re Democrats?
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: I have no idea of the political affiliation of folks who are associated with that Super PAC.
ROBERTS: Bill Burton, who used to work in the White House, who worked for the Obama campaign in 2008?
WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: That is a Super PAC ad that is not affiliated with the Obama campaign or the party.
PRIORITIES USA WAS FOUNDED BY TWO FORMER WHITE HOUSE AIDES
Priorities USA Was Founded By Two Former White House Aides, “Former Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton And Political Aide Sean Sweeney.” “Priorities USA Action and Priorities USA, which has already begun running attack ads on Mitt Romney, were founded last year by two former Obama White House aides — former deputy press secretary Bill Burton and political aide Sean Sweeney.” (Bill Dedman and Michael Iskikoff, “Spielberg, Labor Union Are Obama Backers; PAC Raises Less Than GOP,” NBC, 1/31/12)
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ DOESN’T KNOW PRIORITIES USA’S PARTY AFFILIATION BUT TOP OBAMA OFFICIALS ARE PROMOTING IT
Obama Spokesman Ben LaBolt: “Campaign And White House Officials Have Participated In And Will Continue To Participate In” Super PAC Events. “And the Obama campaign made clear that it still fully supports the political action committee. ‘We have been crystal clear in expressing our support for Priorities USA Action and its mission: re-electing the President,’ campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said. ‘Campaign and White House officials have participated in and will continue to participate in their events across the country.’” (Steven T. Dennis, “Cabinet Members A Super PAC No-Show,” Roll Call, 7/10/12)
